Resolved Issues

Product Area



PowerSchool Admin - Attendance/Schoology

When using the PowerSchool SIS Attendance App for Schoology, the app does not always load properly when the teacher teaches at multiple schools. It is recommended that all customers utilizing the PowerSchool Attendance App apply this release. See Using PowerSchool SIS Attendance with Schoology for more information.


PowerSchool Admin - Class Counts

Multiple issues resolved for Class Counts, including:

  • When dropping a class that has not started yet, class counts would not decrement.

  • When students pre-registered in a section after the future terms start date, the count would increment incorrectly.


PowerSchool Admin - Data Export Manager

When attempting to extract Health data when no students were selected, an error occurred. A warning message will now appear if students are not selected prior to exporting health data.


PowerSchool Admin - Graduation Planner

When entering test requirements for Graduation Plan, some test requirements were displayed or saved as null in certain situations. A zero is now displayed and saved in these cases.


PowerSchool Admin - Graduation Planner Progress

When viewing the Student Graduation Plan progress screens, the values displayed do not always load properly when the inputs included floating-point numbers.


PowerSchool Admin - Health

When trying to enter the first dose of a vaccine, the Date entry box did not line up with the selected vaccine and did not allow the user to save the changes in certain situations.


PowerSchool Admin - Security

When PowerSchool SIS as OIDC Service Provider is enabled, usernames are automatically generated starting with ## if no username exists when defining an Identity Provider Global ID. These characters can impact certain OpenID integrations such as Special Programs. The following changes are implemented:

  • Existing usernames starting with ## will be replaced with ~~.

  • Newly automatically generated usernames will start with ~~.

Additionally, data validation rules have been added to prevent the use of the following OpenID impacting characters in usernames, including existing usernames: & # % [ ] \ / < > ? ^ | { } + " '. This change is made regardless of if PowerSchool SIS as OIDC Service Provider is enabled.

In certain situations, the username may be hidden when OIDC is enabled.


PowerSchool Admin - Security Settings

When modifying an Admin or Teacher record, you may no longer be able to log in using OIDC in certain situations.


PowerSchool Admin - Startup

Previously, a production server installed with PowerSchool SIS could start with invalid security keys. Now, starting PowerSchool SIS with invalid security keys will result in an error message and PowerSchool SIS will not start without assistance from PowerSchool Support.


Removed Features/Future Deprecation




PowerTeacher Gradebook

PowerTeacher Gradebook will be removed from PowerSchool SIS with the 22.4 release. To ensure that teachers can start using the more advanced features in PowerTeacher Pro Gradebook when you update PowerSchool SIS, make a plan to transition to PowerTeacher Pro Gradebook by the beginning of the 2022-2023 School Year.

Moving to PowerTeacher Pro Gradebook

PowerSchool SIS is comprised of several software components, each versioned independently from one another. This allows for greater flexibility of component updates as new features and bug fixes become available. Some updates may include dependencies between components. These dependencies will be communicated and built into the component update installers to prevent PowerSchool SIS from being misconfigured. The following table identifies the version number for each PowerSchool SIS component in this release compared to the previous release:
